My prediction is that the Tim Thomas deal is a precursor to something a little more substantial with the Islanders. I know that's not a sexy roster to look at, but there is some talent there and a couple of guys who I think would really fit.

Some usual to unusual suspects: Jarome Iginla, Ryan Whitney (as well as Derek Smith or Lee Stempniak in Calgary and Laddy Smid in Edmonton). RJ Umberger in Columbus is interesting, as I think he'd fit well on that third (and is a playoff BEAST) BUT his contract is prohibiting and I don't know how we'd do it. Lauri Korpikoski is a player I've liked for a long time now. He'd be a perfect fit in Boston and is one of my prime targets. Karl Alzner in Washington and Cal Clutterbuck in Minnesota.

These are just a few names, of course.
